BETHESDA, Md. — The New Jersey Assembly yesterday passed the Motor Vehicle Owners’ Right to Repair Act (A-803) by a vote of 49 in favor, 22 against and 8 abstaining.
Introduced by Assemblyman Reid Gusciora (D-Mercer), the Right to Repair Act ensures that New Jersey independent repair shops will have the same access to service information, tools and software that vehicle manufacturers make available to their new car dealers.
Passage by the Assembly came only days after the Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee approved the Right Repair Act by a 3-2 vote.
The bill now moves to the New Jersey Senate for consideration.
